Where To File File Form 8875 with the: Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service Ogden, UT 84201 Do not attach it to the corporation’s or REIT’s tax returns.

Notify the IRS of the revocation by jointly filing a new Form 8875, and writing the word “REVOCATION” across the top of the form. Complete Parts I and II and provide both signatures. This revocation does not require IRS consent. The revocation is effective on the date the new Form 8875 is filed. If the employer identification number (EIN) of the TRS changes as a result of a change in status (for example, a merger), the election is automatically terminated. A new election must be made using the new EIN. Specific Instructions Address Include the suite, room, or other unit number after the street address. If the Post Office does not deliver to the street address and the corporation has a P.O. box, show the box number instead of the street address.

If either the TRS or the electing REIT changes its mailing address or responsible party after the election is filed, it should notify the IRS by filing Form 8822-B, Change of Address or Responsible Party—Business.

Line 11 The effective date of the TRS election entered on line 11 cannot be more than: 1. Two months and 15 days prior to the date of filing the election or 2. Twelve months after the date of filing the election. If the election specifies a date earlier than the date in 1 above, it will be treated as being effective 2 months and 15 days prior to the date of filing the election. If the election specifies a date later than the date in 2 above, it will be treated as being effective 12 months after the date of filing the election. If no date is specified, the election is effective on the date Form 8875 is filed. Line 16 A TRS that directly or indirectly owns 35% of the total voting power or value of the outstanding securities of a corporation (other than a REIT) must attach a statement to Form 8875 with the name and EIN of that corporation. Under section 856(l), this corporation also will be treated as a TRS of the REIT named in Part II. If at the time that an election is filed on Form 8875, the TRS named in Part I directly or indirectly owns less than 35% of the total voting power or value of the outstanding securities of another corporation and subsequently acquires securities in that corporation that will result in an ownership interest of 35% or more, the TRS and REIT that filed Form 8875 must file a copy of Form 8875 marked “Automatic Taxable REIT Subsidiary” at the top of the form and attach a statement including the name and EIN of the new lower tier TRS. The new Form 8875 must be filed in the same manner as the original Form 8875 within 30 days of the end of the quarter of the REIT’s tax year in which the lower tier corporation became a TRS. If the 35% interest is not the result of an acquisition, no filing is necessary. Example. REIT and Corporation X jointly filed Form 8875 on January 15, 2014, with an effective date of January 1, 2014. On the date that Form 8875 was filed, Corporation X owned 30% of the outstanding voting securities of Corporation Y. On March 15, 2014, Corporation X acquired an additional 10% of the outstanding voting securities of Corporation Y. Under section 856(l)(2), Corporation Y will be treated as a TRS of the REIT effective March 15, 2014. The REIT and Corporation X must jointly file a copy of their previously filed Form 8875 marked “Automatic Taxable REIT Subsidiary” at the top and attach a statement including the name and EIN of Corporation Y within 30 days of the end of the quarter of the REIT’s tax year in which Corporation Y became a TRS.
